I can usually be found editing photos with my daughter Ruby nearby and a cup of coffee in one hand at my over 100 year old home in Southern Indiana.
I started photographing professionally while I was attending college in 2012. Although I studied photography at Indiana University, I credit years of experience working with many different people in my growth and love of the art. I have held various day jobs that I attribute to my story-telling eye: as a journalist for my county newspaper, a behavioral therapist with children on the Autism spectrum, as a DSP for disabled elderly and even a keyholder at Spencer gifts!
I have been married for nearly 6 years (in April 22) and share my home with two dogs, a parrot and some friendly cats. You might see my former name, Feathered Red Photography on some of my images. Though I have since gone back to Kelly Slaven Photography for simplicity!
I have photographed both intimate and large weddings, romantic engagements, families, glowing mothers-to-be, bright-eyed seniors, fashion shows in Indianapolis, and even products for Amazon.
Despite all of the different types of sessions there are to choose from, I specialize in telling love stories: this means couples and self love--boudoir is such a great way to boost your confidence! I host a private female energy-only group on Facebook for upcoming session info & inspiration.
Thank you for considering me! I truly love being a fly on the wall and showing you the beauty you may not always see in yourself.
